Self Portrait

Creep into the day 

aware with an unforgiving glance on your face

deepend with hate and anger

spit out the foul words that were once used against you

and then bleed the picture on canvas.

Express yourself with the cold colors of the artic shade

The blue is your background,

not as sky but as tears overflowing everything

Paint yourself with no eyes so no one can see the hurt buried in the vibrant hue

Paint no lips so you don't say "I'm fine" when you aren't

Hide the pain because only you can pick yourself up 

when others make you fall.
